About Judy Kimmel
My husband and I are retired and live in The Villages, FL. Don was a researcher in a drug company working on new drugs to make bones stronger. I had a small design business that specialized in custom window treatments. Now that I have time, I am learning to watercolor. I love to paint the tropical flowers and beautiful beach scenes we enjoy every day on St. Croix. The colors are spectacular and the air is so clean that everything looks fresh and bright. There is something to paint around every corner.
Judy Kimmel purchased this Condo in 2006
Why Judy Kimmel chose Estate Golden Rock
We were in the Virgin Islands celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. We decided to look at some beachfront property we saw advertised. We fell in love with this condo when we saw it and made an offer on it that very day. It has been the best snap decision we ever made. We updated and remodeled it to make it seem more like home. We put in all new tile, fresh paint, and a new kitchen. Every year we make small improvements to make it more comfortable and enjoyable for our renters. We love to sit on the balcony to eat, read, relax or just watch the sun rise. We love the tiki huts on the beach and the snorkeling in the bay. When we are tired and lazy we love to walk down to Breezes for dinner. We like to relax in the hot tub or sit by the pool in the late afternoon. We love the friendly staff and our neighbors at Club St. Croix.
What makes this Condo unique
We have updated and continue to maintain 218 as one of the nicest units at Club St. Croix. Club St. Croix is in a great location, just 7 minutes from Christiansted where there are great restaurants, galleries and shops. Many of the fishing, boating, diving, snorkeling, jeep and sight seeing tours originate in Christiansted. We love to walk along the boardwalk around the wharf and eat in the many restaurants right on the water. The condo is close to two grocery stores. It is mid-island on the North shore so we are equal distances from beaches to the east and west. We love St. Croix and all it has to offer. It is a beautiful island and we enjoy all the people we have met. It is a treat to visit the island for a few weeks each year.

No surprises. Just as presented. Great place.
Great condo, great location, great time!
The condo is amazing! Everything was super clean when we arrived, and it had all the amenities for our stay!
The location is great, short drive to anywhere really! Christiansted is very close for grabbing some food or going out on an excursion to Buck Island, but there are great beaches not far either if you just want to hit a beach for the day!
The view from the condo was amazing, pristine turquoise waters right in front of us every morning! We enjoyed having the patio door open and listening to the waves. The beach in front of the condo is great as well, we just popped down there and lounged on the chairs a few afternoons!
The condo itself had all the amenities we could ask for. There are several grocery stores nearby, so we bought food and cooked several nights and had no issue finding the pots or pans we needed!
We will definitely be back when we're on the island again!
We stayed here from Sept 9-16, 2019. It was beautiful !! The condo was clean and nicely furnished. We enjoyed the sea the restauraurant and the pool. Very nice...
Great place to relax
The check in process was quick and easy, I was able to get great communication between myself and the property manager. This place was well stocked with everything you will need. The restaurant on-site has delicious food with a friendly staff. The only thing I noticed is the living room furniture that is shown in the pictures was not accurate however everything else was as advertised. I would definitely stay here again.
The Perfect Location on the Island of St. Croix
This was both the perfect location on St Croix and the perfect 1 bedroom condo as well. I would definitely recommend. Regarding the Condo, it was nicely appointed and stocked. More kitchen utensils and pans than you could ever use. There is a large kitchen table, plenty of patio furniture, and even some beach chairs that previous tenants had left. Microwave, coffee pot, etc etc.
The Patio has a wonderful view of the water and a beautiful beach. Some people have commented that the view is partially obstructed by an onsite restaurant, and while it is true that there is a restaurant that you can see, it don't take away from the view any more than a tree or something would. We arranged the chairs nicely on the patio and the view was OUTSTANDING. (There also were no orders etc from the restaurant like someone else had said). It was actually really nice having the restaurant there. You could have food and drinks out on the beach without cooking and that is not true at most of the beaches on the island.
We traveled the whole island, and hit all the beaches recommended by the owner. Her recommendations were great. In the end, the beach at this condo is as good or better than most though.
Our favorite restaurant was Angry Nates just down the road. Their Bread Pudding dessert is to die for. The drive to the sun dial was worth the trip, as was the drive to the West end. And while the beaches up on that end were short of sand from the hurricane, they still were beautiful and nice for swimming.
It's a quiet island. The float plane (which leave right down the street from this condo) to St. Thomas is worth the money. A ton of fun. But don't miss the flight back like we did as there aren't many options. (I did find a private charter that I would recommend St Thomas Boat Rentals without spaces and dot com. They took us home and were wonderful too.
But this condo is a definite top rating. Great owner too.
The condo is conveniently located mid island on the North Shore. It is just a 15-40 minute drive to beautiful beaches in every direction. It is just 7 minutes from Christiansted by car where you will find the best restaurants and shopping. Breezez restaurant, right on the property, is a great place to eat. It is very popular with the locals. We have two grocery stores up on the main road just a few minutes from the condo.
There is plenty to do on St. Croix. You won't be bored.
